Researcher Steve Kosciuk works with both DDEEA and CAE programs as an analyst to discover, design and develop strategies that promote the academic achievement of underrepresented minorities on the UW-Madison campus. Since 5-8% of each minority Fall Entrance cohort will take more than 6 years to graduate, Professor Kosciuk has developed a series mathematical models which project graduation rates after one, two or three years. Interestingly, all of the models hit actual graduation rates to within 2-3% or less. Thus, there is an accurate means to assess the impact of our strategies on graduation immediately after their implementation.
